Unilorin Professor of Anatomy Decries Scarcity of Cadavers for Study in Nigerian Medical Schools.

Unilorin professor of Anatomy Moyosore Salihu Ajao has criticized strongly the scarcity of cadavers for study and practical classes in medical schools.

Delivering his keynote speech at the 214th Inaugural Lecture of the university, Ajao noted that the challenge is more difficult because cadavers are not sold in the market in any part of the world.

Speaking on the importance of Cadavers for Study and practice.,.he said that the study of human anatomy cannot be fully understood from written descriptions of dimensional pictures or plastic models.

Professor Ajao also added that his findings have exposed the different causes of cadaver scarcity in the Nigerian Medical Institutions and this could be seen in the poor ratio of students to cadavers during their practical studies in medical schools in Nigeria.
